March 2010

The starting point for this look was the hair, the new 124 style from W&Y which comes with a colour-change straw boater. There seemed to be something rather 19th century about it – a day at the races, or boating down the Thames, so I went for a maxi skirt from Sn@tch and a laced bodice (the new Daisy top from SF Design). Daisies reminded me of this Dark Mouse necklace, and I bought the cocktail ring to go with it. The ring came with bangles, but I thought that you could have too many daisies, so I went with a plainer bangle from Eolande.
The Nightmare skirt has attachments for the legs, which are very useful for swooshing about and sitting down, but I wanted to leave a peek of the boots showing, so I just put on the main sculpted skirt.
My favourite skin is Tuli’s Elizabeth, so of course I had to try out Eva, and explore Tuli’s remodelled Journey sim (where these pictures were taken).

Gypsy in teal
There’s a wonderful boho feel to this recent dress from Mimikri, with tiers of silk taffeta. When I spotted this lacey shawl at Lika Ruby I thought they went perfectly together. The shawl has a little rose fastening at the front, with either short (shown here) or longer ties dangling down. The dress and shawl both have plunging necklines, so I covered up with a Michami undershirt (this particular item may be retired now, but Michami is still excellent for basic layers). I was also pleased to pull out a set of necklace and earrings by (luc) which carried through the colours and mood. I couldn’t make up my mind about hair, so I have shown the outfit with Lamb and Truth hair.

Comme les fleurs

This new gown from Baiastice is a sumptuous confection of silk and ribbon, which trails delicately on the ground. I particularly loved this delicate blue-pink lavender colour and found it toned well with this Fashionably Dead hair, with its colour-change flowers tucked behind one ear. Going along with the flower motif I pulled out the ornate bracelet from Swallowtail, and then couldn’t decide between a new RFL item from Alienbear, and the more elaborate necklace from Rozoregalia – so I’ve shown them both.

I don’t usually like sculpted skirts, but I couldn’t resist the colour of this new Sugarcube creation: it made me feel happy just looking at it. I thought it should have some bold colours to go with it, so I found a lovely bright top from A2NZ in my inventory, and tinted a wrap to match one of the reds in the skirt.
